Introduction to Ember.js - a framework for creating ambitious web applications

PLEASE NOTE:  Change in venue and meetup times! Considering that we have a condensed this month's meetup to 2 hours instead of 2.5 hours, we will start meetup promptly at 6pm.

I want to thank our friend Jim Jurewicz, for his help in securing this meeting space. 

Ember.js is a framework for creating ambitious web applications! One of our group members, Seth Phillips will share his knowledge and expertise of Ember.js with the group, and walk us through the process of building and testing your first app using this framework.

Irrespective of what many claim in this 140 characters or less world we live in, we still rely on #broadcast #journalists for many of the news stories and investigative reports we consume today. Most everybody would love to figure out how to reach broadcast journalists and make them interested in covering our stories and more. However, at the same time, one consistent observations I have made is... most of us are not familiar with the profession of journalism/communications, no idea on how to reach someone and get them interested in covering our stories, and most of us have no defined communication strategies. I have invited an experienced broadcast journalist Terry Kelley to come and provide a brief introduction to this specific segment


6:00pm to 6:10pm - check-in, brief networking, Pizza/pop (courtesy: upcoming

6:10pm to 6:40pm  - Terry Kelley, an experienced broadcast journalist, will share some insights into the profession of journalism/communications, and talk about communication strategies for getting your message heard in the media. 

6:40pm to 8:00pm - Presenter: Seth Phillips - topic: "Introduction to Ember.js and building and testing your first app.". Seth is a self taught JavaScript and PHP developer, cycling enthusiast, formerly a live event producer and recording engineer.

    Wish I could have made it. At Honeywell we're launching an Ember app that's 6 months in the making, and I was a bit slammed that night on a bug. Definitely hit up the next embermn meetup and I'll do everything I can to demo the work that went into it. Glad to hear such a warm reception to Ember. It certainly gets many things right and has a lot of momentum on the west coast and in Austin. According to the folks at Frontside, the Midwest is typically about 10 months behind upcoming trends, so I'd say there's a very big chance it will be a contender in your next project. We're starting to staff up in Bengaluru.

    Terry, thank you for sharing your insights into broadcast journalism industry. I enjoyed it. Seth, your session was very well thought out, well practiced, and impressive! Yes, your session was fast paced, but very informative! Ember.js should clearly be a contender for any new web app project of any size. As you mentioned, its a wrapper around JQuery, that encapsulates many of the mundane tasks and adds some advanced capabilities UI/UX interaction that would require highly skill developers and long coding cycles to do it using vanilla JQuery approach.

      To say that it is a wrapper around JQ is overstating the importance JQ plays I think. It certainly leverages JQ but does so much more.

      I agree. After re-reading my comments above, I wish Meetup would give me ability to edit comments. What I was "trying" to say is... Ember.js gives you capabilities that can be accomplished using other approaches, but would be a whole lot more effort to accomplish the task.

    I know that was fast and a lot of information, but I hope everyone got something from it. Contact me if you have any questions as you're getting started.

    For those new to promises in JS, checkout the corresponding recorded talks from MidwestJS here:

    Adam Ranfelt's "Applying JavaScript Promises: Asynchronous Honesty" doesn't appear to be posted yet, but here's a similar one from last year:

    Hopefully another Mac user has an hdmi adapter I can use

    My bus gets to Costco at 5:51 (in theory), so I might be a minute or two late.

    Please note: I have updated meetup location and timings. I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.

    Everyone should grab adolpho's book for $1 for the next few weeks

      Says $25 minimum...

      Sounds like the fire sale ended, still very worth it

    I saw that too.

    Wow, the Apple Music tab in iTunes is actually an @emberjs app! Apple’s moving with the times.

    Please note: this meetup has now been rescheduled to a date in August, to allow us to discuss the latest announcement of WebAssembly in July.
